How many 'diets' are there?
What about weight loss programs? Self-help ones, on-line ones?
How many exercise programs?
HOW in the world does a person choose what is best from all the endless supply of information??
There seems to be a zillion diets and doctors telling us what we should do, what we should eat, how we should exercise. There are thousands of informercials for Equipment that promise to tighten and tone, shed and sculpt. Gyms
Weight Watchers has been around forever, it seems. Then there is JennyCraig, Nutrisystem, SlimFast, SparkSolutionDiet, RawFoodDiet,The Flexitarian Diet,
The Volumetrics Diet, South Beach Diet, The Mediterranean Diet, The Paleolithic Diet, The Atkins Diet, The EcoAtkins Diet, ZoneDiet, The Body ReSet Diet, The Best Life Diet, Whole30 Diet, The Scarsdale Diet, the HMR Program, TLC Diet, The Engine2 Diet, The MayoClinicDiet, The Glycemic-Index Diet, TheGrapefruit Diet, the CabbageSoup Diet, The Macrobiotic Diet, The Beverly Hills Diet.

(Chalene has at least 6 different exercise series available on video- TurboKick, PiYo, TurboJam, ChaLEAN Extreme, TurboFire, and PiYo Workout. I am not sure how different that last one is from the original PiYo is?)
Then there is 30DayShred, HibHopAbs, Rockin' Body, Insanity (the last three by Shaun T - along with FocusT25 and his newest one: Cize)
On-line: Jillian Michaels, The Biggest Loser. I sure there are more!!!!

Nothing works if you don't stick to it. That is one thing. Not everything would work for everyone- that is something else.
Has anyone actually TRIED any of these?
Personally, I have tried Acai Berry, TurboJam and 6WeekBodyMakeover. I am sure that 6WeekBodyMakeover would have worked if I had stuck to it. TheTurboJam exercises were too hard for me. Oh, I also have done the Jillian Michaels on-line one quite a while ago- the exercises were too hard again.
As for diets, I have tried TheScarsdaleDiet, CabbageSoupDiet, and SlimFast.
I find the Don'tEatLikeAHorseDiet the best one of all.
What have you tried!!?? Anyone!?
Do you ever get the feeling that you are running uphill? On ice. In the dark. And your shoes have absolutely no traction.
That is is me. On most days anyway.
I exercise every day.
I eat healthy.
Most of the time, I eat healthy.
In between eating crap- and that is my downfall.
